CT Coastal Academy
Educational Transition Programming
UPDATED: June 8, 2021
The Connecticut Coastal Academy is at the forefront of a decades-long movement that recognizes the gifts of people with physical, intellectual, social/emotional and learning differences. Inclusion of non-traditional thinkers and learners is a strength we harness. Through restorative approaches to behavioral health, we nurture solution-oriented young people, who are proud to take meaningful roles in their communities. Our goal is to help young people understand how they can make a meaningful contribution in their jobs, social circles and communities. In areas ranging from carpentry to videography and graphic design, our students practice and develop creative approaches to problem-solving, and learn how to weave recreation and wellness into the fabric of daily life and purpose. We ensure that our students transition into the real world – a world in which they know how to communicate, navigate and achieve.
Located in Essex, CT, the Connecticut Coastal Academy is a state-approved, private special education program for students in Grade 6 through age 22. Overseen by the CT Department of Education, we provide educational supports and specialized services to at-risk students with disabilities.
